Beef-A-Roo Franchise

Beef-A-Roo has five decades of proven restaurant success. This is a legacy roast beef franchise brand. Start the innovative “Container Model” which will give franchisees an option to open faster and at a lower price point than traditional brick and mortar.

Beef-A-Roo Franchise Opportunity

As a fast casual restaurant chain we are known for our freshly cooked, slow roasted beef sandwiches, signature fries with our own Beef-a-Roo seasoned salt best in category American fare such as juicy burgers, popular milkshakes, famous cheddar fries, onion rings, and fresh standout salads served in elegantly designed dining areas.

Beef-a-Roo began with a wild west theme, hence the name, and will always be anchored in a company culture respectful of innovation, farm-fresh quality, consistency, and exceptional service. We will also always remain genuinely appreciative of the opportunity to flourish with the families and communities we have served for more than 50 years.

“To kick-start the franchising process and take away some stress associated with opening a restaurant, Beef-A-Roo plans to get a few locations up and running and then franchise them out so new franchisees – effectively, letting them get into restaurant ownership much quicker with just having to learn the business model and create brand awareness in their area.” Austin Capoferi, President, Beef-A-Roo

NEXT Brands and Development’s experienced restaurant leadership enhanced the brand’s operational efficiencies, optimized restaurant build-outs, and added more multi-channel experiences to connect with franchisees, customers and communities to ready the restaurant chain for franchising. Now primed for franchise expansion, while still leveraging its five decades of proven restaurant success, Beef-A-Roo plans to grow from an 8-unit regional chain to reach 50 units in markets across the Midwest and Southeast in the next 3-5 years.

Beef-A-Roo’s franchising efforts also include a newly developed and innovative container model restaurant, unique to the fast-casual space, that can be shipped directly, be ready to operate, and require half of normal staffing requirements, resulting in the ability to open and be operating in less time than traditional brick and mortar. Capable of exceptional revenue through dine-in, drive-through, delivery, take away, and catering sales channels, Beef-A-Roo will open its first container restaurant in Rose City, MI later this year.

“While the standard restaurant is still the core build-out, this container model offers lower overhead, a quicker opening timeline and flexibility to give franchisees another option at different investment level and timeframe,” said Capoferi. “We carefully engineered this opportunity that’s capable of exceptional revenue through dine-in, drive-through, delivery, take away, and catering sales channels, and we expect this offering to create a lot of excitement and interest in the brand.”
